Ko Olina Resort in partnership with NOAA and other community partners are hosting this FREE public event to celebrate World Oceans Day. Festivities will coincide with World Oceans Day events around the world. The celebration at Ko Olina will include ocean education and sustainability activities with a strong career focus, live entertainment, food for purchase, and a movie on the beach at sunset.

The global theme and focus for World Oceans Day 2019 is "Together we can protect and restore our ocean".  World Oceans Day is a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better future.

Despite the huge challenges facing the future of our world oceans, we in Hawai’i believe by working together, we can support a healthy ocean that is able to sustain humans, plants, and animals. This event will provide an opportunity to learn about what we can do to protect our ocean resources, including our endangered monk seals and other marine protected resources.
